Facts Page #Comments If you want to hear negro history you’ll have to get it from someone who wore the shoe… 12 He was trying to say if you want to hear the real story you’ve got to hear it from an experienced person. Through songs slaves would make fun of their masters. 114 It was a good way of saying they had time to give their masters attitude. Blacks were killing their masters for revenge. 128 It would be kind of scary If you were a slave owner. Slaves rejoiced when they heard they were free. 136 They were worked to death then they were freed. Everyone was separated then confined when white men bought them into slavery. 24 This was included to tell what happened to the slaves when the white men bought them.
Opinions Page #Comments No slave had an age or name.30I bet that was true for most slaves, but that is just inferring. Drivers were very clever and smart at some times. 35Some slaves got lucky when it was whipping time. Indians didn’t have a complex way of life. 17This shows us the perspective of the white men toward the slaves. Every slave broke free when they heard the news. 136Every slave was excited to be free. All slaves could vote and were equal. 144-145It states that almost every slave was being counted as equal or at least human being.
Slaves being whipped-#35-There is no way I can say I can relate to being whipped, words are like whips. I have been whipped with words many times in my life. I didn’t like it at all because it made me feel like I was being whipped just by hearing it. Slaves treated differently-#16-17-I can relate to being treated differently because I was from a weird, foreign state. I feel like everyone is equal and should be treated the same. I dislike this because I think everyone’s equal. We might have different skin colors, but we are all brothers and sisters at heart. Slaves rebel against their masters-#117- I didn’t ever rebel against slavery, but it did make me feel as if the slaves got the justice they deserved. I liked this because whites couldn’t boss blacks around anymore; it made blacks free. Why did slaves dislike whites but got safety from them. Reading Response
